Salsa del Rio's menu offers more than 30 classic Mexican dishes (most of which cost less than $10) and an array of ever-changing daily specials. Stick with staples, such as enchiladas, tacos, and quesadillas, or introduce your appetite to the big boy burrito ($5.99), a gigantic tortilla wrapping your choice of barbacoa, beef, or chicken, plus a heaping helping of cheese, beans, and pico de gallo. Lovers of the leafy greens can choose from the cranberry, fajita chicken, or taco salads, and vegetarians can nosh a grilled veggie and cheese sandwich, with a stack of onions, peppers, mushrooms, swiss cheese, and cheddar cheese. If the vibrant oranges, reds, and greens mixed into the fresh flavors of Salsa del Rio's plates don't keep all your senses entertained, let the smell of spices tickle your nose and an under-table thumb war occupy your hands.
Fiery red paint splashes the walls of Casa Tequila Authentic Mexican Grill, creating the illusion of heat. Sizzling plates of fajitas emerge from the kitchen, fanning the flames with soft tortillas and hot strips of chicken. Nearby, grilled T-bones and rib eyes amplify the warmth with spicy jalapeños and ranchero sauce. Like most of the menu’s selections, these dishes are made from scratch using super-fresh ingredients. To lower the temperature, barkeeps craft margaritas that are cooler than an iceberg wearing an Elvis wig. Available in a variety of flavors and sizes, these drinks showcase a lineup of more than 50 tequilas. Diners can also enjoy their meals at outdoor tables, amid refreshing breezes and the shade of patio umbrellas.
At Azul's Tequila Cocina, seafood from the Pacific coast and fruity margaritas serve as the cornerstones of an extensive Mexican menu. Drizzled with fresh sauces, the burritos, enchiladas, and tacos pack the palate with juicy flavors. The enchiladas de langosta unite lobster and roasted Mexican garlic sauce in the warm embrace of corn tortillas topped with jalapeño cream sauce. Azul's Tequila Cocina spurns lard, peanut oil, and animal fat in its cooking, promoting health and helping waists stay as narrow as Santa's path through a gingerbread man's chimney.
